Ohio of Limitations for Stryker Hip Lawsuits

By Andrew Sullo

Perhaps you are one of the many Americans hit hard by the Stryker hip recall which occurred in July, 2012. After being on the market only about two and a half years, the Rejuvenate and ABGII were recalled due to concerns of higher-than-normal failure rates. Fretting and corrosion at the neck junction were also cited as reasons for the Stryker hip recall. Founding in 1941, Stryker Orthopedics is a huge corporation, netting over $8 billion in annual sales. Over 13% of these revenues are the direct result of the Stryker hip implant line. Following the Stryker hip recall, over 1,700 lawsuits have been filed against the company from those injured by a defective ABGII or Rejuvenate.

Many recipients of these devices developed metallosis or metal toxicity, and were required to undergo revision surgery in order to remove the device. Interestingly, although Stryker expects to spend over a billion dollars on the Stryker hip recall, stocks of the company hit an all-time high despite the recall and pending lawsuits. Over 20,000 of the recalled devices were sold between February, 2010, and the time of the Stryker hip recall; if you or a loved one have suffered injury or harm from an ABGII or Rejuvenate, it is important that you speak to a knowledgeable Ohio Stryker hip lawyer as soon as possible. Symptoms you may have experienced include those of metallosis:

  • Severe inflammation in the hip region
  • Acute, chronic pain in the hip, groin or thigh region
  • Degradation or death of hip tissue and bone
  • Total hip failure
  • The necessity of hip revision surgery

Some people may have less tolerance for heavy metals in the body, therefore may experience symptoms of metal toxicity at relatively low levels of cobalt and chromium in the body. Others have a higher tolerance, however almost any amount of heavy metals in the body is too much. Symptoms of metal poisoning include:

  • Gastrointestinal, neurological, thyroid, renal and cardiovascular disorders
  • Skin rashes, memory loss, vertigo
  • Irritability, anxiety, depression
  • Diminishment or loss of hearing and vision
  • Reproductive disorders
  • The development of pseudo-tumors
  • Changes in DNA
